NEW SWEDEN – Lynn Johnson, a former resident of New Sweden, and chair person of the New Sweden Historical Society’s Genealogy committee, will be hosting a Swedish Genealogy Research Class on Friday, June 18, 2009 at 3:30 at the New Sweden School.
You can still come and enjoy the Swedish Music and dancing, help decorate the Majst√§ng (Maypole), eat hardy at the Midsommar Frukost (breakfast), partake in a real Swedish Sm√∂rg√•sbord, have a Swedish Supper at the Lutheran Church, tour some of the local historical buildings, and take part in all of the other fun and festive events. But this year you might also be able to FINALLY find your ancestors in Sweden!
For the last several years Lynn has been researching Maine‚Äôs Swedish immigrants, their ancestors and their descendents. She is in the process of compiling a Northern Maine Swedish Family Tree database.
